HATSUNE MIKU”. You can check out the music video below.

The song is featured in Amuro’s latest album _genic which was released on June 10 by Dimension Point. The music video was created using both 3D CG animation and 2D animation and the concept of the video is “Neo Tokyo”.

Nylon TV also began streaming “Making Of” videos for the music videos. The “Making Of” video portrays both Namie Amuro and Hatsune Miku in their 3D CG forms casually talking and relaxing. You can check out the “Making Of” video below.

The song’s key visual which you can see at the top of the page was designed by Shigenori Soejima, the character designer for Persona 3, Persona 4 and Catherine. Hatsune Miku’s design in the visual is the same design they will utilize in the upcoming Persona 4: Dancing All Night DLC.
